When Lady Gaga’s stylist said he regretted some of her outfits this week perhaps he had a premonition of this one.
Stepping out from her New York hotel on Saturday, the singer donned a cage like headpiece that was reminiscent of the one worn by famous Hollywood cannibal Hannibal Lecter.
The Born This Way star is known for her outlandish costumes but even this one seemed to be pushing her own boundaries.
The black cage enclosed the whole of the singer’s newly blonded head and was accessorised by a golden cherub and chains.
Gaga seemed sheepish at first as she walked out of the hotel but then quickly got into character and flashed a peace sign at fans and photographers.
The singer’s creative director Nicola Formichetti said this week he, ‘regrets some of Gaga’s looks. But she works it… mostly’.
Surprising, the rest of the 26-year-old’s outfit was tame by her standards.

Gaga wore a black leather jacket over a lace frilled-sleeve shirt and clack horse riding-inspired pants.
Staying true to her impossible art meets fashion form, the Mother Monster donned a pair of her favourite platform velvet lace-up boots, meaning for a slow walk to her waiting car.
Despite her ridiculous headware, the Marry The Night singer managed to lean out of her car to sign an autograph for one lucky fan.
The singer was leaving New York temporarily to head to New Jersey where she is performing with the Rolling Stones at their 50th anniversary concert.
Gaga practiced with The Stones on Friday and while what she will sing is supposed to be a secret, the Poker Face songstress let it slip that the powerful duet Gimme Shelter is the most likely.
‘Gimme Shelter. It just two nights away!! 🙂 Can’t wait to sing with the Rolling Stones on Saturday Night. In 2007 I was stripping to them,’ Gaga tweeted on Thursday, making reference to the period she was a go-go dancer.
Also joining the anniversary gig is rockers Black Keys and fresh from the 12.12.12 Sandy fundraiser concert Bruce Springsteen.
The singer will be taking to stage without much sleep as she was spotted in the early hours of Saturday morning wearing yet another out-there outfit.
Surrounded in fans, the singer cut a striking figure in the dark cold night wearing yet another of one of infamously out there outfits through Manhattan’s famed fashion district Madison Ave.

The 26-year-old stood out wearing a snow white ensemble which included a highly structured white mini dress with a long train and exaggerated shoulders, a matching fur coat and sky-high black stilettos.
The Born This Way singer did prove she is willing to suffer for her fashion as despite having her fur coat to keep her warm, her dress’ shoulder detail prevented her from wearing it, forcing the New-York born star to carry the coat.
Gaga’s penchant for fur has landed her in deep trouble previously with animal rights group PETA, but the 26-year-old has defended her coats saying they are pieces of art.
‘I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat,’ she said.
‘You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.’
Real or fake fur aside Gaga – who’s real name is Stefani Germanotta – added some extra edge to her look thanks to some serious fake nails.
Wearing a mix of gold and black, the singer upped the weird factor with a giant long black nail extending from her index finger.
